Description

This is a magnificent Venetian glass miniature decorative vase in the style of a jug/creamer, circa 1900 - 1914, made on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. Made by Fratelli Toso, similar items are shown in the book 'Venetian Glass - Confections in Glass 1855 - 1914' by Sheldon Barr, pages 114 - 119. Made up of loads of multicoloured floral millefiori murrine canes.

Please note:  Although this vase is obviously too small to hold a bunch of flowers, it is still classed as a vase.  Small vases like this were often used to hold flowerheads, or miniature "sweetpea" flowers, or simply used as decorative ornaments.

Size

Measures approx 4 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a small bit of ash or grit in the glass from the manufacturing process, very common for these items, and shown in final picture.
